Neil Turbin (Ex-Anthrax) Shares Acoustic Cover Of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt”

Ex-Anthrax singer Neil Turbin has shared an acoustic cover of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt.” You can check that out below:

Turbin commented:

“I was familiar with Nine Inch Nails’ ‘The Downward Spiral’ and eventually the Johnny Cash [version of ‘Hurt’] around a decade later which helped shed new focus on Johnny Cash and his brilliant song and video performance.

My reason for covering the song is having something in common with Trent Reznor besides being a singer songwriter and that is that I have been at the former house of his on Cielo Drive in Benedict Canyon. The feeling and energy I felt while there made the hair on my arms stand on end and gave me chills. I’m not saying that for effect. I just felt some very strong feelings that were not something I normally feel or hardly ever feel. With that being said, I went home that night and started to look up the address since intuitively I felt compelled to try to figure out why I was feeling what I felt. Once I researched it and found out the unbelievable history, I re-discovered this song after some time reviewing related songs. I felt very connected to this brilliant song.”

“This is a tune we were working on during the ‘Horizons/East‘ sessions, but hadn’t completed. I’ve always been fascinated by songs that only have one chord progression, but feel expansive and varied through the use of shifting melodies and layers, and we wanted to play with that format here.”

Spiritbox Share Live Acoustic Video For “Constance”

Spiritbox have shared a live acoustic video for their song “Constance.” The performance, which includes strings from Haruka Horii, Bonnie Brooksbank, and Mark Bassett, was previously only available as part of the Grammy Museum’s “Spotlight Saturdays” series.

Guitarist Mike Stringer commented:

“This live version of ‘Constance‘ was a very ambitious project for us. Before we left to start recording ‘Eternal Blue‘, I had a rough demo of an acoustic version of ‘Constance‘ written.

While we were tracking the album, the Grammy Museum asked us if we’d want to contribute to their ‘Collection:Live‘ series with a live acoustic/stringed composition of the song. Of course this was a huge honor for us and something we couldn’t turn down, but it posed a challenge as we were recording in the middle of the desert, and I had never written a string composition before.

After learning how to turn midi into notation, and some back and forth with our producer Dan Braunstein, and violinist Haruka Horii, we had a version we were confident in. This was the first time we had ever performed this song live, and the addition of the strings by Haruka Horii, Bonnie Brooksbank, and Mark Bassett really brought this whole thing to life.

Putting this together was a great experience, and I hope to explore more acoustic compositions in the future with Spiritbox.”
